Hitachi DZ-MV350A MiniDVD Camcorder

Operating manual


Product Description From Hitachi:

These camcorders record directly on to a DVD disc so you can access instantly any scene on the disc, resulting in savings endless hours of rewinding and fast-forwarding.This camcorder can fit into your pocket, similar to a traditional size still camera. You even have a choice as to how you record your memories.

With the introduction of the world's first DVD camcorder, Hitachi has advanced the world of home video recording. In fact, Hitachi won an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for this accomplishment. Instead of tape, the DVD Camcorder records to an 8cm optical DVD disc. It automatically writes to blank areas of the disc, with no worry of accidental erasure. You have direct access to any scene or still photo on the disc-no frantic fast-forwarding or rewinding to play back what you've just recorded.

DVD-RAM allows you to record and erase scenes on a disc as many as 100,000 times, about average for most doting dads. Each recording is stored as a scene that you can edit, apply special transitions to, and compile with other scenes into custom playlists. All performed within the camera. You can even record in DVD-R, a write-once format, so you can remove the disc from the camera and play it back on your home DVD player.

Because you can record directly to DVD, remove the disc and play it back on a home DVD player (even mail it to friends or family), you can easily share your important moments with family and friends. This dual format DVD camcorder offers both DVD-RAM and DVD-R recording and playback, as well as the capability to shoot and store nearly 2,000 still photos plus an SD card capability. The Disc Navigation feature not only enables direct access to any scene or photo, but provides a host of in-camera editing functions. With the optional PC Kit, video can be uploaded to your PC, where you can author your own DVD movies and burn them back to DVD-R on the camcorder.
